Under the Mesquite

By The Lost Entwife

For such a short little book, this one sure packs a punch. Don’t be fooled by the “a novel in verse” – this isn’t a story that contains rhymes or cheesy moments. This is a beautifully paced, lusciously written story…

I think I appreciated this story all the more for the portions of Spanish scattered throughout, the beautiful descriptions of home and country and the love shown through sacrifice.

This is not a story to be missed. It’s short, there’s no excuse not to read it, and it will impact you in ways that novels 3 times its length will not manage to do.
